Chris Nelson’s Eagle Farm Best Bets

RACE 2 No.10 Uncommon James

Very promising three-year-old from the O’Dea/Hoysted yard who resumes from a spell tomorrow. Beaten narrowly on debut at the Gold Coast back in May last year he then won his next couple in good fashion before being turned out for a break. Loved his recent trial accounting for some quality types such as Annavisto and he did so with plenty in the tank.

RACE 6 No.8 Burning Bell

Filly from the Edmonds stable on the Gold Coast who could easily be unbeaten at her 4 starts. She motored to the line on debut at Ipswich to miss out by an eyelash before going on to win her next three the latest on the Sunshine Coast poly track charging away from her rivals with the blinkers on for the first time. Good draw, top jock, she can measure up.

RACE 7 No.7 Chayse ‘n’ Artie

Well in the market tomorrow however still at a backable quote each-way. Only lightly raced he put in a cracking run behind the likes of Political Debate and Sharp ‘n’ Smart in the Phoenix which proved a solid form line in the Group 1 Atkins. He just couldn’t get a decent crack at them until all too late and arguably would have gone close to winning.
